Dr. Biederman, a 1999 alumna, taught writing at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio, for three years. She authored “The Walmart Book of the Dead,” inspired by trips to the Oriental Institute.
What makes you excited about your subject, and why do you like teaching it?
“Writing is a way to think and to be and to understand the world and to understand yourself, so through working with other people’s writing, students or grownups or anyone, I get to know other people and the ways people know and understand themselves.”
What is one thing that students should know about you?
“I know the kind of pressure that Lab students can put on their own writing, and my goal here is to help people find a way to release and relieve some of that pressure.”
